A attractive print from a very early edition of a 19th century Paris women's magazine. These periodicals, whose circulation in great numbers, created heightened interest in clothing, needlework and household decor. The average homemaker was exposed to the latest in Parisian fashions. If she had some skill as a dressmaker or the money to employ one she could replicate the dresses depicted in these magazines.
The hand-coloured French fashion engraving was responsible for filtering the new styles throughout the major cities of Europe, America and Japan and thus represented great wealth to the clothing industry of Paris. No expense was spared to commission talented engravers and colourists for these beautiful works of art.
